Focus on Research

Theoretical Astrophysics Program

In 1985, The University of Arizona consolidated its traditional and long-standing strength in astronomy and planetary sciences through an interdisciplinary program in theoretical astrophysics that involves the Physics, Astronomy, Planetary Sciences (LPL) and Applied Mathematics Departments and NOAO. The Theory program administers a Monday colloquium series, graduate student research and recruitment prizes, a postdoctoral fellowship, and a visitor program.
